The Scrubs and More store opened at 830 SE Rose St. in downtown Roseburg.
The store offers branded clothing and accessories for medical professionals, said Brad Watkins, owner of the store with his wife Kisha. The store is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“We decided to separate Rick’s Medical Supply’s clothing into its own entity and move it downtown to a building we own that once housed Kisha’s nail and hair salon, The Nail Café,” said Brad Watkins. “We have Sasha Ringen, who was Rick’s scrub manager, managing the new location.”
The store carries Grays Anatomy, Koi, Carhart and other brands, as well as nursing accessories and shoes, he said.
The Scrubs and More store plans to have a big opening celebration the week of October 4, Watkins said. For more information, call the store at 541-673-1668.
PROMOTED TODDKemberly Todd is starting a new position at CCD Business Development Corp., as Technical Assistance Coordinator, serving Douglas, Coos and Curry counties. CCD received a Local Initiatives Support Corp. grant, funded by the US Bank, to fund the position.
“The opportunity to help small businesses get the help they need, and access to technical support is my happiness,” Todd said. “Now I can help entrepreneurs and business owners in three counties. “
The COVID times have put the long-standing needs of small business owners at the forefront, and this new tech assistance grant is designed to help, Todd said.
“When you’re a small business owner, you don’t have a lot of time to manage and / or grow the business, and that’s where technical support comes in,” she said. “Technical support can be different depending on the needs of business owners. They may need to write a business plan, ask how to hire a new employee, and secure financial resources to invest in their business. When a business wants to access capital, the CCD is the perfect place to start planning.
The technical assistance grant can help both nonprofit and for-profit businesses. Nonprofits employ people while serving their communities and, in many ways, operate like any business – they need access to money and technical assistance to ensure their success. , said Todd.
For the past seven years, Todd has worked as a Program Specialist for the Small Business Development Center at Umpqua Community College (SBDC). CCD, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, is partnering with the Small Business Development Center and city and county economic development efforts to access and meet the needs of the small business community in the counties they serve.
Todd said small business owners work hard and are pulled in many directions.
“My goal is to meet them in their business or at community events and meetings to find out about their specific needs and direct them to the resource that can help them,” she said.
For more information, email [email protected] or call 541-672-6728. To learn more about technical support for your business or to apply, please visit the CCD website at ccdbusiness.org.
